7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Mein Auto: 2002 745i
What to do first with new used 745i

So, I just won a repo auction on a 2002 745i - 73k and a pretty good carfax. But they don't let you drive it.

I am planning on immediately going with an oil change and a nice detailing. What else should I go ahead and do immediately - especially since I think it's been sitting since late 2013/early 2014? ATF change? Coolant change?

If I contact the dealer that provided some of the previous service, will they be willing and able to give my whatever service history they have? All I have is what made it's way to the carfax.

thanks in advance
